Artists’ Talk: Aug. 20, 2015 | 6:30pm
This summer the residents had a very unique experience in being led by artist William Cordova. The students had the opportunity to build and share with one another by receiving individual/group critiques by Cordova and other artists/curators, provide post discussions on readings, and visit other organizations throughout the city.
Participating artists include Sula Bermudez-Silverman (Honorary Resident), Guadalupe Hernandez (Houston Baptist University), Jennifer Mendez (University of St. Thomas), Kingsley Onyeiwu (Texas Southern University), Shaun Parker (University of Houston), and Kandise Ponce (University of Houston). Summer Studios 2015 will also feature an installation by artist William Cordova.
The residents will give an artist talk on Thursday, August 20 and unveil their projects to the public on Saturday, August 22.
About Summer Studios
The Summer Studios Program was developed to provide an opportunity for emerging artists to create and exhibit work that responds to, engages and/or is reflective of community. This program is open to seven local college/university art students, nominated by their professors and selected by a panel of professional artists. This Program is open to students who are interested in making art in an urban community setting, engaging with the PRH/ Third Ward Community and interacting with established Houston-based artists.
